The Welbodi Partnership is a UK charity that supports child health care in Sierra Leone through the Sierra Leone Institute for Child Health (SLICH). SLICH is a joint project between the Ministry of Health and Sanitation, the Ola During Children’s Hospital and the Welbodi Partnership to create a centre of excellence in paediatric care. It forms part of the Government of Sierra Leone’s Strategic Plan for Reproductive and Child Health and is funded by Comic Relief and others.
Ola During is Sierra Leone’s only children’s hospital and is located in the poor and densely-populated eastern part of Freetown. More than 15,000 patients are treated at the hospital each year. The hospital is under-resourced and providing adequate care is an on-going challenge.
The Sierra Leone Institute of Child Health (SLICH) has a vacancy for a nurse educator, with significant experience in paediatrics and in developing countries, to develop in-service modules in paediatric nursing for the nurses of the national Children’s Hospital in Sierra Leone and to train national nurse educators to help deliver these.
This rewarding position offers a unique opportunity to be involved in the development of human and institutional capacity, crucial for the rebuilding of the health system in Sierra Leone. The successful candidate will be employed and managed by the Welbodi Partnership, a UK registered charity, on behalf of SLICH.
